Brief description of Akselera’s role, deliverables and results
Akselera was responsible for the design and realization of Altia’s SOR solution from the content, process, and SAP points of view. In addition, we made a solution rollout for abroad taking care of local requirements. As a result of the SOR initiative, Altia´s receivables management efficiency and quality can be improved. Akselera’s tested project approach, system solution, and committed experts enabled the SOR implementation success within the original timeline (approx. two months) and budget. With Akselera’s state-of-the-art SOR approach for SAP, Altia has ensured optimal receivables management processes and technical functionalities both locally in Finland and in foreign subsidiaries.
”«The best part of cooperation with Akselera was their ability to understand what we wanted to achieve and then, based on the defined scope, come up with a workable and extendable technical solution.»Tuula HatakkaGroup Treasurer, Altia
